At least 31 people have been killed as result of a twin suicide blast in northeast Nigeria, AFP said, citing local officials.

“There were two suicide attacks and rocket-propelled grenade explosions in Damboa last night which killed 31 people and left several others injured,” the leader of the people’s militia, Babakura Kolo, told the AFP.

According to the media, the attacks could be carried out by the militants of the radical Islamist group Boko Haram, which is active in Nigeria.

Boko Haram is an Islamist terrorist group, operating in the western and central African region, which has pledged allegiance to the Daesh terrorist group.

The group’s ultimate goal is to establish the Islamic caliphate in Nigeria. Boko Haram is responsible for most terrorist attacks and abductions in the country.

Alongside with Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad are jointly carrying out a military campaign to battle the Islamists.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction
